Working since 4 years as a TeamSpeak 3 server (on Windows7 Ultimate, sorry 4 not using Linux) and can also handle a Linux VM in VirtualBox. Slow but works.

Horribly limited by any modern standard, if you encounter one of these hyperthreaded single core systems you will likely feel pain deep in the depths of your soul. Low clocks, slow memory bus and a single hyperthreaded core leave these machines struggling with even the most lightweight of tasks. Yes, they will run Youtube in a Chrome browser on Windows 7... but yu'll be limited to 360p or so given the horrendoues bandwidth. Don't expect much here other than slow, sluggish processing in any modern task. If you must get an old Atom series CPU then try for the N570 - they at least had two cores and four threads so perform much better.
